My favourite Montessori blogs written by Moms

I am currently very selective when it comes to read other blogs.

Mainly because I don’t have much time and I try to “reduce” my time on screen.

I have a few favourite and those blogs have been around for years.

However, there are many new Montessori inspired blogs and I wanted to share some of them.

It is by no means an exhaustive list. Feel free to comment with your blog or with your favourite bloggers.

This list is about parents who blog about Montessori. These bloggers, to my knowledge, are not Montessori trained teachers. If you have been mentioned and you are trained, let me know and I will transfer you over my list of Montessori blogs by trained teachers.

In no particular order:

How we Montessori:

I cannot believe our eldest are the same age! We went on our Montessori journey probably around the same time and I have enjoyed reading this blog since 2011! Obviously, this blog is hugely popular and I’m sure you knew about it already! Kylie is a mum of 3 boys and the 2 eldest were attending a Montessori school until they moved to the UK. I’m looking forward to read all about her Montessori family life in UK.

Counting coconuts:

Although this blog has been inactive for years, I love to come back to it like a good book to read again and again. It covers the period from 2 to around 5 years old and great if you homeschool.

Chasing cheerios

It is also an archived blog but it was one of my favourite when my daughter was little. So many activities to look at and search through the archives. You can follow Chasing Cheerios on Instagram too.

Fred, Ted and Company

A lovely member of our Montessori Community. Ted is the mum of a charming little boy and one baby soon to be due. She gives lots of insight into the Montessori philosophy as well as sharing her adventures in Northern Ireland.

The Kavanaugh Report

This blog is a goldmine and I’m sure you know Nicole Kavanaugh and her beautiful family of 3. Search by age and you will find lots of ideas for your little ones. (Nicole is trained in the Catechism of the Good Shepard, a catechism inspired by Sophia Caveletti who was a disciple of Maria Montessori)

Frida be mighty

Not specifically Montessori but inspired by Montessori, Waldorf and simple living, Eloise’s blog is simply gorgeous. Her daughter is going to be 3 years old so you can find lots of information about babies to 3 years old. Eloise, as far as I’m aware, is homeschooling her daughter so expect lots of years of activities to come.

Show me Montessori

I believe they are based in UK. Mum of a lovely daughter who is 5. Lovely pictures and ideas.

This toddler life

Written by a Australian mum. Also about minimalism.


This list is by no means exhaustive so let me know in comment what you read!

    Free the child’s potential, and you will transform him into the world – DR. MARIA MONTESSORI

    A Montessori classroom is a thoughtfully designed environment to offer children opportunities to develop their own capabilities. Each classroom is filled with developmentally appropriate activities that encourage children to interact with specific learning materials, as well as to work cooperatively with others. The combination of independent, partner, small-group, and whole-group lessons and activities introduces children to different learning relationships and interpersonal dynamics—valuable skills for their interactions outside the classroom.
